Education is vital for the future of agriculture. The California Department of Education, the Superintendent of Public Instruction, and the State Board of Education have strongly supported a comprehensive program of instruction in agriculture that integrates technical agriculture with strong academic foundations in core subjects. Limoneira is a supporter of local FFA programs and we partner with SEEAG (Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture), a comprehensive program that enables students to learn about nutrition, energy and food production. In addition to this program, we offer sustainability and agriculture tours for all school field trips. If you are a parent or teacher who would like to arrange a school field trip, please contact www.seeag.org.
Limoneira has developed new products in the Limoneira Kids educational product line. These products teach children how agriculture and sustainable growing are an important for our economy. A master chef kit has been developed to teach children about good nutrition.
